Gender Sensitive Media Tool Kit

Making it easier to report on HIV and AIDS (English and Urdu version)

This toolkit was prepared by Uks in collaboration with Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and launched in June 2007. The toolkit provides a much needed guideline to the journalists covering HIV and AIDS on how to report and write about this pandemic more sensitively.

 This toolkit has been devised to enable media practitioners to become key activists in the battle against HIV and AIDS. While many journalists are likely to say that they did not go into journalism to change lives but to report facts , it needs to be acknowledged that HIV and AIDS is being treated differently than other topics because of the stigma attached to it. Journalists at least need to ensure that they do not contribute to that stigma.
